A country-pop singer with a smooth, easy touch, a fondness for light R&B flair, and a knack for sweetening the swagger of bro country, Cale Dodds first gained attention as a performing artist in 2017 and 2018 with a series of singles highlighted by "Take You Back."
Prior to launching a recording career, Dodds worked as a Nashville songwriter. A native of Columbus, Georgia, he moved to Nashville in 2011 after attending Columbus State University. As a professional songwriter, his most notable song was "Drunk Dial," which was recorded by A Thousand Horses in 2015; after it made 23 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, Dodds signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell. A year before "Drunk Dial," Dodds self-released his debut EP, Wild and Reckless. In 2016, he released a second EP called People Watching. The following year, Dodds signed with Warner Nashville, which released the singles "All Over" and "Out of My System" that year, followed by "Take You Back" and "What We Gonna Do About It" in early 2018. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
